About Us

The cultural marketplace? Noisy. Disorienting. Confusing. So what guides you? Join Christian theologian Dr. Brian Mattson and film and media producer Jay Friesen as they discuss how Christianity intersects with the culture we encounter every day. Dead Reckoning TV is a weekly, edgy, relevant, hip, funny, satirical, thought-provoking, and otherwise seriously entertaining Web TV show* exploring how the Christian faith is good for you, for society, and for the entire universe.

*(yes, we really do think a lot of our show)
